¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! presents Los Angeles-based Grandeza Mexicana in a festive mosaic of Mexico’s regional cultures and dance traditions. The group’s signature meticulous footwork and beautifully-designed costumes reflect the careful research underlying all its performance. Come see why Grandeza has become one of SoCal’s most popular folkloric performance groups in free, family performances at Isla Vista School, Friday, January 19, 7 p.m.; at Guadalupe City Hall, Saturday, January 20, 7 p.m.; and at the Marjorie Luke Theatre, Santa Barbara Jr. High, Sunday, January 21, 7 p.m..

Grandeza Mexicana is committed to perpetuating and showcasing the splendor of Mexcian folk dance, and to the cultivation and promotion of public awareness of the rich diverse cultural heritage it represents. Whether choreographic works depict celebrations, ceremonies, or daily rituals, each offers a colorful slice of the flavor of Mexico. Backed by careful research, Grandeza’s choreography pays tribute to the traditions and customs of Mexico’s historic past and while honoring the promise of the future. Santa Barbara County performances will feature dances from Michoacan, the Costa Chica of Guerrero State, Zacatecas, Sinaloa, Sonora and Jalisco.
